I assume this on Windows and DB2 is installed on your local machine. Go to
the Control Center (not the Command Editor). Expand the hierarchy tree for
your server name, right click on Databases, and select Create. If DB2 is not
started, then right click on DB2 under Instances, and select Start.

Hmm, he complains that a service can't be started.
Go to services, check all named db2* and verify the password.
